phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 1 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Overall, build quality of the phone is sturdy and it feels like it can handle a few bumps and drops
  • A couple of the preloaded Jio apps may come in handy - you get Jio beats (an adfree music library for streaming and offline download of music), JioPlay (multiple LiveTV channels), JioOndemand (full HD moviesTV series), JioMoney (digital wallet) and JioChat
  • Very good 4G speeds on the bundled Jio network (with a 90 day free trial)
  • Support for VoLTE calling to other Jio numbers (VoLTE calls connect much faster than typical GSM calls and the voice is louder and clearer)

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The back panel has a glossy finish which is prone to fingerprints and scratches - luckily though a soft silicon transparent case is included in the box for added protection
  • Average low resolution screen with poor viewing angles and washed out colours
  • Performance is decent in daily use but it struggles with games and photo editing apps
  • Low internal storage (8GB)
  • Average battery life - you will probably be charging it twice a day
  • Cameras are mediocre
